The dissonance and the paradox | Marcelo Gardinetti

“Since the mid-seventies, Stirling has shown his struggle against the boredom produced by the repetition of modern architecture, against its triviality and its inability to situate itself in historical contours.

The roads of water | Íñigo García Odiaga

The territories are generally sculpted by water. Its absence or abundance determines the appearance of the landscape in which the architectures are inserted, which are nothing more than a small obstacle in the slow flow of water along the surface of the earth.

Islands, desert, mountain. Degree zero architecture | Josep Lluís Mateo

The fascination caused by distant places, in the limit of human existence, places where it might be better to spend than to stay, or where to stay always go along with a vague sense of threat (condition, from romanticism, at the base of the aesthetic experience).

Projecting with nature | Guido Cimadomo

Every time I find more interest in immersing myself in nature than in visiting the latest examples of author architecture. On a recent trip to Australia, a European architect marveled that he had not planned to visit the Sydney Opera House.

Since seekers of effective surprises our creative capacity can remain reduced by the existence of too many caps of information. Impeded by a dense coverage of unconscious hypotheses, inherited concepts and not expressed ideas.
